This final year project is a study on structural truss decks which can be used to hold industrial loadings over existing developments. The study aims to find some of the more cost-effective structures – those with the longest span and least deflection under the maximum loading, using the least amount of structural steel. Steel sections underwent software analysis, while selection of joint connections was based more on industry research. However, instead of identifying the ultimate structurally-effective cost-efficient truss deck, the results show the range of prices for the structures analysed. Thus, this study gives an understanding of the minimal structural and financial requirements of realizing such an innovative idea.
